A little bit about me:

Hi, I’m Alex,

I live with my husband, Charlie, and 3 children in Ringwood. We also have 2 cheeky cockapoos called Molly and Stanley. It’s chaos but a lot of fun! I met my husband at university in Coventry 16 years ago (when I was young!!)

I love going on dog walks, days out and hot chocolates out as a treat. My favourite place I’ve ever been to is Rome. I could happily live on Italian food and never get bored. One day I would love to travel more, with my dream places being New Zealand, Bora Bora, and the Philippines.

My family comes from all over the world, including the USA and Australia, though my background is mainly Irish and Welsh. It’s always fun listening to all the accents at family get togethers! My mum, uncle and grandparents have lived in a lot of different countries.

I’ve only lived here and in Spain, which was a lot of fun. They have an amazing culture. While in Spain I taught English in the local school and found I had a love for teaching and helping people learn. This is what eventually led me to driving instruction!

I love the mentoring side of driving instruction and watching a world of freedom and possibilities open up for the learner. What’s not to love?!
